Newroz

Published: March 26, 2012, Author: JayTaber

As Kurds from Turkey to Iran celebrate Newroz (Kurdish New Year), Kurds in Turkey support a referendum to decide the future of Kurdistan. As an Indigenous nation extending across Syria and Iraq, in addition to Turkey and Iran, Kurdistan has everything going but its own state. That may happen in the future, but for now autonomy over such things as language, education, policing, health and trade would be a good start.
